We’re all huge fans of post-metal around here, and that is evident in all of our amazing posts about the subject. Personally, I love the more intense style with just constant walls of guitars. The music is minimalist in nature, but grand in the big picture. However, I really don’t listen to that much shoegaze-y music. However, negative_crush are a band that combine elements of industrial music, post-metal, and shoegaze to create quite an interesting sound. Lucky for us, we get to host a new single from their upcoming record invisible_weapons, which you can stream below!
“Starling” is a very interesting piece of music that kind of serves as a retrospective of the genres that influence the group. You get a ton of feelings you’re in the golden age of any one of the three genres I named, and the music itself paints a pretty good picture of where bands were at the peak of their movement. It’s not reinventing the wheel by any means, but makes for a really good listen time and time again. The new album will be out February 14th via SOlid Grey Sky Recordings, so be sure to follow the band on Facebook for more news!
